No matter which fun summer activities you’ll be doing with your kids this Summer, be sure to protect their delicate skin (and your skin, too!) from the sun’s harmful rays, with Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen.
As a mom, and someone who loves being outdoors and in the sun, I like Blue Lizard because it is a pharmaceutical-grade sunscreen made by Crown Laboratories with the highest quality ingredients. It is also ranked as one of the top sunscreens by the Environmental Working Group (EWG)!
Blue Lizard has five sunscreen formulas available: Baby, Sensitive, Face, Sport & Regular – All are broad spectrum UVA/UVB coverage (SPF 30+…all the coverage you need!)
Blue Lizard’s patented PBA-free Smart Bottle™ changes color from white to blue (or pink for Baby formula) when it is exposed to harmful UV rays reminding you to put on sunscreen. My kids love watching the bottle turn blue! It definitely makes applying sunscreen a much more enjoyable experience for them.
